Jonathan Wright’s Proppy chair is designed to be comfortable, lightweight and stable on any surface. ‘I was keen for its appeal to be generated from its use. Its visual appearance was secondary and has evolved from non-visual criteria such as comfort, its ability to fold and a desire to use triangulation for strength,’ says Wright, who graduated in architecture from the then Manchester Polytechnic in 1993. The Banana Chair Company in Nottingham manufactured the first batch of 100 Proppies last month.
